Spring Forward With Flowers!

Sun leads to Spring, which then leads to the tulips, daisies, daffodils, etc. that are all arriving at the store. We’re excited, and you should be, too! All of this sun means flowers are soon to be blooming, while bringing with them the beautiful colors and scents back to Pittsburgh.

And, now that the sun is waking us every morning instead of snow(thank goodness), it will be a lot easier to roll out of bed to go out and enjoy the day. Not a morning person? Well, that’s something us florists can fix!

Forget about that morning cup of coffee, because there is something else that can brighten up your morning. According to research posted on the Society of American Florists’ Website, flowers are the perfect incentive for that morning moodiness.

Studies from this research have shown that placing flowers in the rooms most visited throughout the morning had put people in better moods, and had even increased their energy. How cool is that?!

The Society of American Florists’ Website also listed a few tips on how to truly perk up your mornings with flowers.

  • Be spontaneous with what you place your flowers in to ensure that the container suits your personality.
  • For a “sunny” feeling (which I would say is appropriate for the weather these past few days), incorporate flowers that are of the yellow or orange spectrums. For a special touch, add lemons or limes to the arrangement.
  • Match your flowers to your room palette to really accentuate the colors in that particular area of your home.
  • Set your flowers in an area that, at times, may get messy. This will help to ensure that your house will remain tidy.
